  • She said, "We're only young once"
    The back of a Chevrolet
    "Hey Now", on the radio
    Ashes in the tray
    You can only get drunk once
    On this kind of naivety
    Who knows how long we're always gonna feel this way?

    Time goes by
    And it'll dull the razor
    And we don't know why
    Let's worry 'bout that later
    'Cause if we never do nothin' else stupid
    If we never do nothin' else stupid
    At least we know someday
    That we can look back and say
    We were young once

    We were young once
    We were gung-ho, singing in the sun once
    Backroads in the wild, on the run once
    Cheap thrills, doing things in the wheat fields
    We were young, we were young, we were young once
    We were young once

    She said, "Let's get a cheap hotel
    And make out in the hall
    I'll cover up your mouth
    And play it cool if my parents call"
    Let's get lost tonight
    Before the world's too small
    Someday we're gonna know too much to know it all

    Time goes by
    And it'll dull the razor
    And we don't know why
    Let's worry 'bout that later
    'Cause if we never do nothin' else stupid
    If we never do nothin' else stupid
    At least we know someday
    We can look back and say
    We were young once

    We were young once
    We were gung-ho, singing in the sun once
    Backroads in the wild on the run once
    Cheap thrills, doing things in the wheat fields
    We were young, we were young, we were young once
    We were young, we were young, we were young once
    We were young, we were young, we were young once

    We were young once
    We were young once

    We were young once
    We were gung-ho, singing in the sun once
    Backroads in the wild on the run once
    Cheap thrills, doing things in the wheat fields
    We were young, we were young, we were young once
    We were young, we were young, we were young once
    We were young, we were young, we were young once

    We were gung-ho, singing in the sun once
    Backroads in the wild, on the run once
    Cheap thrills, doing things in the wheat fields
    We were young, we were young, we were young once
    We were young, we were young, we were young once Writer/s: Josh Osborne, Matt Jenkins, Miller Zachery Crowell, Sam Lawry Hunt
